Aesops Restaurant - User Reviews


We recently had our wedding reception at Aesops and I am still completely overwhelmed at the tremendous effort, service, kindness and understanding given to us by James, Tina and all the staff. Not only did James put up with bridezilla emails for 8 months but he helped us execute the most incredible wedding reception ever. My entire family are saying it's the best they'd ever been to. What amazed me most is how by 10am the next morning, the entire restaurant setup was completely cleaned and packed ready for me to collect in tidy boxes. I know we left it in shambles after drinking way to many signature cocktails! The dance floor was perfect, everyone enjoyed the plate smashing and zorbas and the cools kids totally loved hanging out in the mezzanine playing the piano. Our family are not Greek and I do believe anyone should consider Aesops for their wedding venue. Our night was  24/07/2012
